    I was recently contacted by a man who purchased an Ashton 3 chime whistle at a sale a few years back. It's a beauty. He sent me some pictures of the whistles. Take a look. image0 (1).jpeg image0.jpeg image1.jpeg #28    172.jpg

    He bought it at an estate sale a number of years ago. He hasn't heard it yet. He is planning on contacting a local RR club to try and hear how it sounds.
    I think it's maritime too. It's been appraised at over $10.000 !

    I just picked up a circa 1895 Ashton catalog. Only 12 pages long! The next year (1896) the catalog was 75 pages.
